Lullaby Of Life

By Shahnaz Islam

Quilt of ardours and lee sides
Bed of Foxtail Orchids
Melody of a song
You made me a cosy nest to rest
Before I fall slumber

The forenoon
I open my eyes
It was just a dream
How the monsters awaiting
For my flesh
Their victual on the platter for supper

‘a little sac of pixie dust
i wish i would have
sprinkle all over and be it
a fairyland of nod of my own’
